So on my way to work this morning, as I was driving down the street (before getting on the freeway), I had to move to the right lane, and as I moved into the right lane, the car ahead of me suddenly slams on the brakes. I was going somewhat fast, just because I was just coming out of a lane change maneuver, so i moved into the bike lane just to avoid a love tap. Anyways, everythings cool and all, and I start moving back into the far right lane and out of the bike lane because I saw come guys on bicycles in my rear view. The first guy passes, but the second guy as he passed me on his bicycle yelled out obsceneties. I don't know why I did it, but I just flipped him off.
Now, the street that I'm on at the moment (Venice Blvd) is really busy. So I was going to be on that street for awhile until I get to the light. The guy on the bike actually waited for me to drive up to him further up the street. Again, I don't know why I did this, but I saw him wait for me, so I rolled down my windows and as I passed him, I cussed him out, a typical "**** you, *******!"
Again, I had to stop since the light turned red and it was a busy street. Now the guy just pulls up to me, and I still had my windows down, so he just start spewing off "C'mon, *******! Lets go, right now!" as in he wants to brawl. I retort, saying "Look man, I ****ing moved out of the way for you..." and he's still yammering away, but the light turned green, so I just pulled away. Unfortunately, I didnt pull away fast enough, because he punched the back of my car where the trunk is and as i found out as I got to work left a nice dent.
at this point, I just wanted to get the **** outta there and away from this crazy *******, but unfortunately, I had to make a right turn and get into the left lane of the next street in order to get onto the freeway, and the lane was full, to the point where cars were blocking the intersection (if you're familiar with the Venice & Sawtelle intersection, you'll know what I'm talking about) so i just turn right, stayed in the right lane (instead of the left lane because it was full) and my plan was to make a right at the small street that was across from the on-ramp, make a U-turn (which is easy because theres a small turnaround right there) and get on the freeway.
as i make the right onto the small street with the turn around, lo and behold, its the crazy *******. again, i dunno why, i guess i was feeling smug or whatever, but as we passed, I just waved at him, rather non-chalantly. however, he spat on my car.
after making a U-turn at the turn-around, i had to again wait at a traffic light. The psychopath was standing right there, throwing rocks at my car, and taunting me, wanting me to get out and fight him. I just waved him off, kinda like trying to shoo off a pesky bug (thats what it felt like at the time).
luckily, the light turned green shortly after, so that the Looney Bin patient was only able to throw 3 rocks, and not more, at my car. and as I was driving down the freeway, it gave me chance to think, is this guy going to be waiting for me tomorrow morning? Should i carry a baseball bat in my car? What if I run into this guy, should I all-out beat this guy into a pulp? My feelings are very conflicted, as I try to be very zen about things, but man i know that if i see this guy again, i would want to straight up murder him. and just thinking about the dent he left on my car doesnt really help much either.
i just need to find a way to calm down and relax... hence i vent.
oops sorry, GAM, can you please move this into the SS/NSS forum?
